Nike’s annual Be True Collection draws inspiration from the LGBTQ community in an effort to celebrate the “passion and pursuit of sport by all athletes” (Nike). Now, the Internets have gotten a peek at a Nike Flyknit Racer that carries the rainbow theme.
This Be True model isn’t emblazoned with the colors of the rainbow like other models in the series have been. It uses a rainbow Swoosh and a pink sockliner to echo the theme while the Flyknit mixes things up at the forefoot.
Whether the Be True collection actually honors LGBTQ+ people or uses them to make money is a matter of opinion, but there is little doubt that this Flyknit Racer will be limited and hit the resale market quickly.
Thoughts on the Nike Flyknit Racer ‘Be True’ so far? Let us know.
